to senate republicans particularly john mccain sent with their treatment of hague snell. >> i think actually it was a long memory from people who had to work with chuck hagel over the years, alex. i think a lot of people who didn't say then senator hagel and sometimes his treatment of witnesses at the stand, people that had to go before him and be questioned by chuck hagel were not surprised by this kind of grilling. also, remember chuck hagel spent a lot of time telling people they were wrong or they were immoral in some of the decisions that they made. and this was some payback for him for that type of stance towards others in both colleagues and people who had to testify before his committees. >> yeah. and i mean, there are those who -- john mccain, shall we say, he's probably going to be upset that chuck hagel was there supporting president obama when they were running against one another. you get that. but this is a pretty serious job, tony. this is defense secretary. i mean, do you think that kind of politics, those maybe personal issues should be brought up under these circumstances?

, if nothing new came out we'd vote for cloture, senator john mccain and myself, but that wasn't good enough and they wanted to force the issue so i'm glad that we have got more time to look and i'm glad he answered my question, about a very disturbing comment he allegedly made. so i think we're doing our job to scrutinize, i think, one of the most unqualified, radical choices for secretary of defense in a very long time. >> chris: well, let me ask you a question about that. if he is so radical and unqualified, if you get the information you are seeking on him, and on benghazi, we'll get to that in a moment... why wouldn't you still continue to try to block him? >> well, because i do believe the president has great deference and here's the question for our country, can we do better than this? i think so, the president chose the controversial nominee that refused to sign letters supporting israel and, refused to sign a letter asking the eu to designate hezbollah as a terrorist organization and the list goes on and on and on but at the end of the day, this is the president's decision, i give h

related or similar to what his tax increases have done. >> but at the same time, senator, both john mccain as well as speaker boehner have both called these cuts incredibly dangerous as well. >> well, it's dangerous in the sense that most of the cuts or at least half of them are coming directly from the military, which has already experienced some budget cuts. so the defense system in our country is only about 20% of total spending, but 50% of the cuts come from it. and in that sense, it does weaken our security. but defense spending will still increase 16% over the next ten years. so, there are no cuts here. there's a slight reduction in the increases of spending. the real damage to our economy is going to come from the tax increases and other policies, such as the implementation of obama care. >> so, arianna, what were you hinting at before? you think these cuts will create more employment? will weaken economic growth? is that what you're suggesting? >> exactly. and, you know, i think senator demint and many republicans really believe that the major problem we're facing is the deficit an
